MINNEAPOLIS - The University of Minnesota football team will be without kick returner and receiver Troy Stoudermire for Saturday night's game against Northern Illinois.

There are reports in the Twin Cities media that Stoudermire is planning on leaving the team.

Although nothing official has been reported from the U.
